I love flying, because I feel like a kid again. For the duration of the flight I can sit and relax while a friendly person brings me snacks, takes me trash, and tends ot my every need. It feels good to have someone take care of me, for a change. I'm sure it's not in their official job description, but patience of a saint, seems to be par for the course with flight attendants. I make sure to say please and thank you, but I always wondered if there were any special things flight attendants want you to know to help make a great flight.
We would be lost without the loving guidance of flight attendants, and I am lucky enough to know one who has made thousands of flights awesome for tens of thousands of flyers. Younes Rhorchi has been helping passengers navigate travel all around the world for 18 years. At this point, he could do his job with is eyes closed, but he is one of those people who still cares enough to give it 100 percent.
The most important thing Rhorchi wants you to remember before you board your next plane is to be be prepared. "Having everything you need makes the process run smoothly." This includes checking TSA guidelines before you even start packing, and reviewing the policies section of your airline's website.
Whether you're a veteran flyer or a first timer earning their wings, take it from a pro and consider these seven things every flight attendant wants you to know before boarding your next plane.
